LIVESiRE LOST 



Partial Destruction- of ■Montreal 
Herald Building Involves 
Many Employees — Nearly 

. All Bodies Still in Ruins - 



DISASTER CAUSED 

BY FALL OF TAI\IK 



Heavy Machinery Crashes 
Through Floors and Fire Is 
Started — Many People Res- 
cued By Firemen. 



MONTnEAL, Juno 13.— Uotwecn 
twenty and thirty jicovilo are botli:v- 
ed to have lost tlioir lives this morn- 
ing when at 10,30 the sui)i)ort.s of tlic 
sprinkler system of the tank on tlio 
roof of the Herald building gave awny 
and the great mass of metal and 
water, weighing IhMy-flve tons, went 
crashing downward to" the basement. 
In \ts fall It took with It men, women 
and machinery, and then when all luy 
in a jumbled rna.«<.s at the bottom fire 
broke out and added lis liorrors, 

IS'o one laiow.s how many lie dead In 
the pile of debris that fills the base- 
ment. All iu'ternoon firemen were 
engiigoa in denioUHhlnp the tottorlnff 
walls that hud to cunie down before 
the work of recovering the bodies 
eoiild be safely .attempted, and it was 
not untU after six o'clock that tlie 
firat remains, ch&trdd and mangled 
beyond recognition^ Were • brought out. 
All of those whO' eacoped ^^agrti^.; tbnt 
the fir-st warnings' of Impencfilng dis- 
aster passed almost unnoticed. There 
was a alight crcaklnRr then a little 
more, somewhat more pronounced. 

Then those who looked to the colling 
•found tlint the plaster was falling. 
Some started for the stalr^vay, hut 
before they could reach thorn they 
heard a great crash some of them felt 
the floor sinking beneath their, feet 
and' some survivors tell of falling one 
or two floors before the awful craah 
died awtiy and tHey fduhhAtilimSfelves 
able to crawl In the dense dilst to 
a place of, safety. — 

The majority sought safety by ruali- 
ing, to the front of the building, fac- 
ing on Victoria Square. Fortunate- 
ly all the floors held for about thirty 
feet hack from the front wall, and to 
this is due the fact that the death 
list does not run up into the hundreds 
for tliero were nearly 300 people In the 
building at the time, .v People .passing

by the city council to inspect the as-

Gentlemen; I have complied wltli 
your reciuoat, under date of the 7th 
Inst,, "to make - an Inspection of the 
assessment roll, and submit nndlngs 
on or before the lOlh inst." 

I beg^ to report as follows; 

1. — Broadly, I consider the assea.^- 
nient as a wliole well up to the statu- 
tory value. 

2. — The relative values of adjoining 
properties In the a.ifgregate appear 
equitable. 

3. — There ore some disparatlcs, in 
my opinion, which can only bo satis- 
factorily adjusted by the decision of 
a majority of a committee appointed 
for that purpose.

■1. — Tilcro Is a BeoUon.; p£> the city 
where I consider the ..QBsessment low. 
due to a recQnt. rapid rise In: value, 
^YhloJl rise. -IsjiJn .:tho i..puT)lio , esteem, 
whether-. well' grounded or.^ot Is pro- 
blernatlcal.^ fTho-faot-ithivt. the asses- 
sor has not. kept step -with; It, Is due 
to prudence,' and In itiy opinion Jus- 
tifiable, for the reason that It Is hot- 
ter to allow a year to olapso before 
recognizing' a .spasmodic mcreuae. dur- 
ing which time the justincatlon for 
tlio rise, or the reverse, can be as- 
certained, rather than to Iiamcdiatidy 
follow with a correspondingly In- 
creased asaoasnient, and the succeed- 
ing year be called upon by" the Court 
of Kovlslon to reduce It. 

G. — At llrst blush the viilue set upon 
acreage would appear to be low la 
comparison with tlic; value set upon 
adjacent city lots, but when It Is 
considered from the point of view of 
a subdivision and due allowance made 
for streets, coat of platting and local 
Improvement cluirges, the values plac- 
ed thereon are found to he fairly 
eciultable; the same may bo said of 
other property. A careful study of 
the surrounding tacts, in the great ma- 
jority of cases, vindicates the assess- 
ment. The whole question Is very In- 
tricate, and in my opinion, of sulllcl- 
ont Importance to warrant the ap- 
pointment of an e(iuaily.atlon commit- 
tee at least every two or three years. 

C— Generally, to attempt .to ,dP: more 
than summarize In the,'tlme allotted 
for the Inspection would be futile. 
Granted that the, values iset by the 
assessor are within the prescribed. 
Rtatutory Jlrrdt. thp* next Important 
considoratlcin'. Is: "Are the values on 
adjoining . lands relatively and pro- 
liortionatel'y" equitable?" I have no 
hesitation I lt» 'saying I belleyo them to 
1)1! as nearl'j? so as the Judgment of a 
single'-a^Juster, animated by a sincere 
desire 'tp be ^perfectly, fair,, can make 
them. • ,S'J

A Victoria Automobile Owners and 
Chauffeurs' Association has been 
formed, Us object belnj,' tho promo- 
tion of the sport by means of boost- 
ing for better roads, for reasonable 
by-laws concerning- the sjieed limit, 
and for the disseniinalion of informa- 
tion regarding tiio many beautiful

end r)f the Island. 

Although only mooted for a few 
day.s the orgiiiilzatton already has sub- 
stantial .backing. Its moinhership 
includes the ijrojirletors of the major- 
ity of the garages, a large number of 
the iirlvale owner.s of cars, and prac- 
tically every man who drives a ma- 
chlni'. 

Oik.' of the first matters that the

vlslons of the by-law under wliicli, 
during the past several days, a num- 
ber of motorists have been fined $20

Fifty Milesian Hour ' ' H 



NEW YORK, jSlje 13.— Chas. K.' Ilaini 
llton arose from Governor's Island in ah 
aeroplane this mornlni; ond sped without 
a break 88 miles to Philadelphia In a re- 
markable cross-country flight under the 
auspices of tlio New York Times and the 
Philadelphia Public Ledger, He made 
the trip in one hour and fifty-eight min- 
utes, leavhiH- Governor's Island nt 7:3B • 
and landing at Philadelphia at 0:20. 

Alighting at tlio aviation field, ho de- 
livered lettor.s from Governor Hughes 
and Mayor Gaynor to Governor .Stuart 
and Mayor Iteyburn, accepted messages 
of congraliibition from them in return, 
and startod for New York again with 
only a brief intermission for food, fuel 
and oil. Ho had flown, approximately 
seventy miles of ,>'hls return Journoy

record made in the Curtiss flight from 
Albany to New York, 

That Hamilton did not make the re- 
turn trip as easily as the outgoing trip 
was duo only to an omLsslon caused by 
haste. In IiIh hurry to get away he ne- 
glected to clean his spark plugs. They 
fouled, and tlio engine balked, and he had

There will be no horse races here 
upxt week on the track of the H. 
Afirlcultural association If Mayor Mor- 
Icy i-im pioviMit it. Ill.s wor.slilp .statcil 
.so plainly l-AHt iiit;lu tu the city coun- 
cil tluniijh hu did noL say Just what 
wU.'p.s ho uill take lo i)iit tlie ban on 
the jionicK. The Country club has boon 
«lveii the privilege by the association 
of holdlni; the meet and the members 
of the city council, or at lea.'it a ma- 
jority of tlioin, are In favor of the club 
lipint' allowed to hold the meet but 
Mayor' Morley doclarcs that as chief ex- 
ecutive 'of 'tlio- city ho will carry out 
tile pl-ovisions of a bylaw ceccnily 
pas-seU which, he claims, gives tho cUy 
tlio right to regufnto Its premises at 
ilio fair grotlncis and say Just what 
Hball and what shall not be pcrmltteil 
tbere In tho way of sports, races, etc. 

The matter came before the council 
by way of a report of the legislative 
comnittle^ whioh set fortU that the 
committee had, through the president 
of the B. C. Aisrrlcultura] nssoclntlon, 
1)11 n mado aware of an\ interim Injunc- 
tion granted by .-Mr. Justice Gregory, 
against the association at the Instance 
of tho Country club, aimed at prevent- 
ing the repudiation by the association 
of the Country club's Claim to bo ten- 
ants under an alleged lease of the race 
track. It being 'alleged In the prooeed- 
i"K!i that the Country club intend to 
lioia a race meeting. Tho city council 
was not a party to thepe procecdlnKM 
and the committee con'stders that it I.s 
for the council to ascertain by a legal 
dcci.slon whether a race meet can bo 
held on Its properly contrary to the 
city's express determination not to per- 
mit such, a determination', expressed In 
resolution of the council some time ago. 
The committee consequontly recom- 
niondcd that Mr." Fred Peters, K. C, bo 
retained to advise on and take such 
proceedings as "may be deemed desir- 
able to assert the city's right to tlio 
control of its property at tho lull 
grounds and to ' obtain a dcci.slon 
whether, in 'opposition to the councll .s 
exi)re6H wish, race meetings can be lioi<l 
by the Country club and whether with, 
or without the consent of tho council 
and subject .to the terms It may bio 
lit to Impose. 

The committee's report also stated 
tliai a resolution to <'t)ie nbove effect 
was passed by the' egmnilttee after xtn 
amendment as follows was put and de- 
clared lost: "That no fiirtlier expense 
nie Incurred In respect to the tenancy 
Slanted liy tlio R. C. AKrlcuitiiral asso- 
ciation lo !lie ('ountry club." 

Wants Control. 

Alderiiian I,angloy, In moving tbo 
adoritloil id" Ibe report, stated tliat tlio 
<Hie.stioii of riicint; or no racing was not 
Involved. The real question was 
wht'tlier the Country club could bold n 
nice meet on city projiei'ty Irrespective 
of the wi.slu-s of till.' city. Ho roterreii 
1(1 the MeK'Otlatloiis enteroil into lu.st 
year in March bet\s'een tiie Country cluh 
and tho city wherein the cUib a.si;e<l 
permission to hold a meet in 1:109 at a 
rental of ?G0 per day and tho rlglit to 
lioid a meet in each of the succeeding 
four yoiir.s at a rciiial to be subsetiiienl- 
ly unreed upon, the club to make due 
application to the city for .such prhil- 
ege. Jt liold.s u lease I'loni the li. I,'. 
Agriculluial aasoclatloii hut as the lat- 
ter body is a tenant at will it had no 
right to ■ grant a' lease for a lerin of 
years to any person or body. Tlii.-i 
Ifusc has tint lieeii seen bj' nuy of the 
council. Only recently tlie coimuU by 
imanimous resolution, determliipd lo re- 
fuse fo stmction any race meet by 
whomsoever held, until sucii lime as a 
proper application for iierniisslon to 
hold such meet bo niiide to the- enuncll. 
Notice of .such action by the council 
was sent to tho Country club which m as 
therefore notified as was arranged last 
year of tlie city's refu.-inl to concede tho 
club the rlfilit to race this year. Tlio 
Country club has no rlglit on the city's 
grounds and Aklernian I.angley was 
certain that bad .ludse Greii'ory lieen 
seized of the full facts he would not 
liavo granted the Injunction asked for 
by tb.e club. It the club wished to iiobl 
a race meet It should have come lo tho 
cliy and .asked for pcrmlsalon as It last 
year ufjrecd to do. 

Alderman Banncrman pointed out 
that the club's lease from the B. C. Ak- 
rlcultural association was a lease vir- 
tually front the city as the then mayor 
and two aldermen itad approved of tlie, 
lease. As the city Is responsible for 
the action of the assoclntlen, a respon- 
sibility which the oily has shown it ap- 
preciates by the fact that it has puld 
the association's ..debts. It was, Alder- 
man Baririernuin believed, foolish to 
say that the city Ijas never been asked 
for permission to hold a race meet. 
Tlio city possesses an acting city so- 
licitor, a city solicitor, a city barristor, 
and douljtless would have to pay for llio 
services of Mr. H.' 'Dallas Helmckcii, 
K. C. wlio appeared for the B, C. Agri- 
cultural association . recently in conn 
when the Country club secured ItM In- 
junction, and now the leglslotlve com- 
mittee wanted to secure Mr. Fred I'e- 
lers K. C. l''lvo legal advisors was al- 
togcilior too many. There would Just 
be another law su)t pnd the city would 
lose as It seems jilways to lose. 
Afraid of Law Salt, 

"I'm not in favoi' of a i-aco meet." de- 
clared Aliernian lianiiernian. "but T 
would latlur have one than a bnvsult. 
I call look after iny money at the for- 
mer hut 1 ean'l in a lawsuit " 

Alderman lil.'iho|) urged tliat tlio 
Country club he given porni Is.'-'Inu to 
hold the meet and Alderman Ros.s o!C- 
pressed Ills fear of more Icijai entangie- 
nionls.

connection we may add that tUo Oak 
Bay municipality will have a force of 
constables on the ground sufficient to 
preserve order. 

If it should bu tho opinion, of >our 
honorable body that the holding of this 
race meeting will Infringe upon any of 
tho legal rights of tho city of Victoria, 
this letter should give on opportunity 
to have tho matter peaceably settled In

Having especially In mind the enthusi- 
astic ondorsoment by Dr. Mackay (of 
tlio Nova Scotia, schools) of tho advnot- 
"goous workln'fft out of tlio' Striithcona 
Trust apprbpriatlons as a moans of Im- 
proving the physique of tho clilldrcn of 
Canada attending tlie schools of tho Do- 
minion, tho Government of Urltlsli Col- 
umbln luis followed tlie oxainplo In this 
regard sot l).v the provinces of Xovu 
Scotia, Now Jirun.Hwh'lc and Ontario, and 
aocoptod llio conriltlorus of the TniKt as 
a|il)Iled to this province. Prince lOilwiinl 
Island Is also moving In the nnnio direc- 
tion, wlillo Quebec Is sending two dolo- 
giites to Ottawa to disou.ss Trust nuiaers 
with tho officials of the JlllUla dopiirt- 
mont. It seems reasonably certain that 
the close of the present year, will sec all 
tho confederate'd provinces ambraco tho 
advantages of. the trust establishment, 
by aceoptance of the attached conditions. 
Kor this province a 'council has b^en 
named consisting of Mr. W. P. Argue, 
M. A., of Vancouver, Dr. K. B. Paul, of 
tills city, and Insi)eclor David Wilson, 
M. A., of the Kilucallon department, to 
consider, with the l oiue.seiUatlv ^i of the 
MllUla dopnrtnicnt tho varliiiis (h.-tails 
roaulrlrtg to ho illsiiosed of in the cai-ry- 
Ing out of Strathcona Trust plans In this 
Pacific province. Tho SInUhcona dona- 
tion amounts to ?30O.iHlO. !in(l is Invented 
In tho l-^inaiice depiirtnient of Canada at 
a special ratL- of four per cent, the 
amount earned for utilization anniuilly 
boing thus approximately $12,000, dlvls- 
able by tho number of schools. It. Is 
thus roughly estimated thcit'the amount 
annually available for British Columbia 
will be between, $300 and $400, in addi- 
tion to which the Mllltlu department 
supplies Inalructors and Inspectors free 
of clinrgo and pay bonuses to nmlo 
teachers according to the work done by 
them In the promotion of physical train- 
ing In order that the gonoral public 
may have a fair and comprehensive 
Idea of tho scope and luirposo of the 
Strntheona Trust, tho following extracts 
are given from a letter addressed to Pre- 
mier JIcBrldo by Mr, A. C. Lewis, secre- 
tary of the executive council of the 
Strathcona Trust, on tho Dth November 
last: 

"li"rom Inquiries that have been ad- 
dressed to tho executive council, flomo 
misapprehension appears to have arisen 
as to the aims and objects of the Strath- 
cona Trust,. It is Wlth. tt.vlew to tho re- 
moval o'f any grounds of misunder- 
standing that I am directed "tb submit 
tho following remarhs; 

TliQ Objsct 

"As you are aware. r,ord .Stratlicona'.s 
object In forming the Trust la two-fold 
— the Improvomont of tho physical and 
Intellectual capabilities of the children 
while at school, by means of a proper 
system of physical training calculated 
to Improve the physilcal "dovelripment, 
and at tho same time to Inculcate habits 
of alertness, orderliness and,' prompt 
obedience; and the fostering of a spirit 
of patriotism In the boys, leading them 
to realize that the. first duty of a free 
.cH)*en- is-"to •■■fis- prepared -tb defend his 
country, to which ,b11 boys should, as 
far as possible, be given an opportunity 
of ncnulrlng n fair acquaintance while 
at school, with military drill and rifle 
■ihooting. ■■■ . 

"(4) With regard to the first point, 
tho oxeoutlvo council deems It necessary 
to-rcquiro that a province, before It can 
participate In tho benefits of tho trust, 
should pledge Itself to Include In tho 
regular curriculum of tho schools un- 
der Its control, instruction In physical 
training for all children of both sexes, 
attending tho same. This requirement 
appears to bo clearly understood by all, 
and there have been, so far us the ex- 
ecutive council Is aivare, no serious 
objections . raised to tho universal In- 
trodU(itlon; ofva well-tested system^ of 
physical .Jjtrainlng into all tho public 
schools of Canada. 

"(6) With regard, however, to the 
question of military training and rifle 
practice for the -boys.ia somewhat im- 
portant misapprehension appears to ex- 
ist In certain (luartors, to the effect 
that the .Strathcona Trust Is designed to 
be used as a vehicle for the Introduction 
fo a system of compulsory military 
education Into tlie schools of the Do- 
minion. I am directed to state om- 
Iihiitlcally that such is In no wise Lord 
Strathcona's Intention, or that of the 
executive council of tho Trust. 

Spirit of Patriotism 

"(G) As stated above, one of Lord 
Strathcona's main objects Is to inculcate 
a' spirit' of patriotism Into the youths 
of this country, together with a real- 
ization. of their fluty as free citizens, in 
Its defence, and consequently their train- 
ing In the rudiments of a soldier's art 
Is, in his opinion, desirable, in order that 
thoy may bo nblo to give a proper ex- 
Iirosslon to that spirit in time of nation- 
al danger; but his lordship does not 
seek to lnsl.':t thnt this military train- 
ing should bo niiido compulsory. All ho 
aslts Is that the govornmont of a iirov 
Inco shoulil undertake to oncouraKO as 
far as possible the formation of cadet 
corjis and tho iiractlce of riflo sliootlng 
In the schools imdor Its control, leaving 
to tho parents thoniselves to decldo 
wliothor their eons should join ibese 
corps. Tho proper military Inslruction 
and oarO' of ' these corps when formeii is 
a matter which falls within tho prov- 
ince of the Department of Militia. Tho 
Dopartmaht of Militia, however, a.iks 
that the educational authoratlos win en- 
courage, or at least place no obstacle in 
tho way of thoir teachers becoming- of- 
ficers of tlioir school cadet corps. 

"(7) The poHltlon may, perhaps, best 
bo summed up by ro-HtatIng the follow- 
ing general conditions wlilch tho ex- 
ecuttvo council of the Trust asks tho 
educational department of a i)rovInco, In 
ordor to ensure to the schools under Us 
control participation lii the benefits of 
the Trust. It Is confidently believed 
that perusal of tlieso conditions ivlU 
show that they cannot fairly bo In any 
way construed a.s an attomiit to Intro'- 
duco a system of compulsory inllltar>- 
training into the schools of Canada. 
Tho Oonaitlons 

"(8) Those conditions aro as follows; 

(a) Physical training to form an in- 
tegral jjarl of tho curriculum In ovory 
school or public, educational establish- 
niont maintained mainly out of tho 
public funds, at which a teacher holding 
a cortiflcato other than that of tho low- 
eat grado is employed; 

"(b) A cortiflcato of ability to in- 
struct ill physical training to form part 
of every teaclier'.s certificate other than 
tlioBO of the lowest grade granted by 
tlio educational department of tho prov- 
ince. ' . ■ '■ ' ' • • . 

"(c) The education department , to 
encourage the formation of cadet ca!rps, 
Ificludlnc the practice of rifle shooting 



under suitable condltlona by tho older 
boys. In all educational establishments 
under its control; 

"(d) The system of physical training 
to bo adopted to bo that in force in tho 
elementary public schools in Great 
Britain (which has recently been revised 
in view of tho latest developments in 
Sweden, Switzerland and other countries, 
with such modifications tlierein as tho 
local conditions of any province may 
show to. .bo,,-.neoossary. . . .. ■ 

"(ey.-i?|ip.;., education department to 
undertBlc^.'.tp.T.equire, within a . specified 
perl6i^,; 4U'-teaohors_;'yvhO, are; afready In 
possesBioh 'of 'Its' certificates, other than 
those of ''tlie ''lowest'' grmlo, to qualify 
thenisoIvoH to instruct in physical train- 
ing (subject to tho oxeniptlon of such 
teachers as are physically unable to 
qualify, or aro nearly at the end of their 
terms of service), so that In every school 
there shall bo at least one teacher cap- 
able of Imparting the necessary Instruc- 
tion. 

"(9) The l\Illitl.'i. department will, on 
Its part, aid the i'Zducatlon departments 
by affording tho necessary facilities to 
tho tfiuclicrs of both sexes to qualify 
themselves In physical training, by pro- 
viding instructors until such time as tho 
provincial authbrlties ar6'in a position 
to undertake this duty tliomsolves. 
NooBssary Instruotlon 

"(10) The MlUtla dopartmont will also 
afford tho teachers tho nocesaary In- 
struction la military drill re(|ulred to en- 
able them to bci'onK! nfficers of cadet 
corps under the sumo advantages as aro 
already allowed to officers of the active 
mllltla, and" will grant certlflcateEl ' Of

"(11" The Militia 'di^pdrtment will also 
pay th> authorized grants to the teach- 
ers qualified and aOting; as Instructors 
of cadet corps, and will 'supply to these 
corp,s such arms and equipment as are 
needed under tho regulations applicable 
to each case. 

"(i:;) Slr.l'^rederlck W. Borden confid- 
ently liopes that after consldorutlon of 
the rure.L;ulnK exijlauotlon, your giivern- 
luent may see It.s way clear at a very 
iiarly d;ile to declaring Its acceiitance of 
the conditions mentioned In paragraph 8 
of this letter, so that both teachers and 
pupils 111 thf educational establishments 
of the province may be competent to 
share In the boncflts of tho Trust."

but a telephone call to Governor's Isl- 
and 'brought a new one by automobile 
with ft set of spark plugs, and the 
aviator was able to llnlsh within tho 
twelve hours, although 24 hours wero 
allowed in his contract. 

Carrying as he did letters • between 
tho two cities, Hamilton created the 
first fast mall by the overland route 
to Philadelphia and return, and do- 
nionstrated that an aeroplane can do- 
liver mall from one city to another 
with the i)unctu.'iiity of government 
sorvlc'G. During, tho whole of his first 
lap he never varied more than two 
minutes from his time card, and he 
came down on the handkerchief laid 
to mark his landing spot with the 
proclalon of a homing pigeon settling 
on his porch. It Is on interesting co- 
incidence tliat Hamilton won his hon- 
ors today with the same biplane th:it 
won tho International speed trophy 
for Glenn ll. Curtis at Rheims last 
year, and then was driven by the same 
l>ropeller In which (^(^rfls recently made 
his historic fllglit . from . New York, 
Curtlsa Hew over 'a inor'e picturesque 
country, but Hamilton overcame to- 
ay's obstacles of geograjihy and sot- 
backs of luck thnt no other aviator 
has ever conquered. Curtlas carried 
pontoons; Hamilton Hew thirty inllca

he said,' was obvious, and, taken as a 
whole, it was the greatest compliment 
to the work of one country over paid' 
by a citizen of another. There was 
nothing in the . present situation In 
Egypt, the foreign secretary declared, 
to cause disquietude or Justify a sudden 
resort to unusual methods, but If the 
.•symptoms already hote,d of anti-British 
agitation continued the government 
would take measures to assert its au- 
thority Bnd protect- tho Egyptian minis- 
ters who followed the government's ad- 
vice.

bearing on tho same subject, to which

awarding cf tho contract. In connec- 
tion with construction work In the 
jirovlnce, he anticipated no diniculty 
as far a.'i labor v/ai; concerned. In thl.T 
respect his company had been singu- 
larly fortunate in .'ill tholr constructive 
work throughout Canada. 

RcforrlnK lo the Dun.sniulr coal jirnp- 
ertles which he, in company with .a 
syndicate of English capitalists, havo 
practically acquired, -Mr. Mackenzie 
stated .'thtit there was every intention 
of carrying out extensive developments, 
and that In all probability four now 
mines would ]fe opened in p. short time. 
Until tho deal was finally consum- 
mated, it was premature to mako any 
definite announcements In this res- 
pect, but ho could .say that nn expan- 
sion of the coal areas would take place 
within a very short time. Ho exijccted 
tho pro))ertieH to pass Into tho handse 
of himself and his associates during 
the present v/ook. 

Local Terminals 

Nothing: has as yet beep dennltely 
decldofl with respect to tho terminals 
of tho 'Victoria '& Barkley Sound Rail- 
road, either in the Capital or in the 
Barkley, Sound fllstrlot. As Incor- 
porated In the bill which passed nt 
the recent session of the Provincial 
Legislature, "car shops foi' tlie Island 
road would be situated In the vicini- 
ty of Victoria. Until' theV surveys 
•A'ore coniplDte nothing could bo de- 
cided as to tho point from which tho 
line would leave Victoria. With tho 
lotting of tho contract for tho first 
twenty miles of construction it would 
he posiilblo to arrive at a conclusion 
in thoso respeqts. It was time enough 
to consider the question of ferry con- 
nection when the.llnes were la opera- 
tion, on both tho mainland and the 
Island. 

Mr. Mackonzlo spoke enthusiastical- 
ly of conditions In tho province, and 
implied that his company contoniphi t- 
cd holding an Inimensn stnko In tlio 
Island in tlie course of time. Tho 
extensive tlm'l)er limits In tho Cowl- 
chan Lake district, which ho lias In- 
terested English capital in, will bo

be established on the Island, the logs

poses to tha yraser lilvor uiills.

AN ECONOMIC PROBLEM 

We are favored by being pormittea 
to reproduce a Ic'.ter written by Mr. J. 
J. Mill. oC the Great Northern, li> a 
(lUstlngiiished and prominent Britisli 
statesman. In so doing wo have 
been asked not to mention the name 
of the gontlomnn to whom It was ad- 
drossod. If we were able to do so, it 
would add to the Interest of the let- 
ter. The question dealt with In the 
communication I? one to which we 
have on several occasions directed the 
attention of Colonist readers, and this 
is why we have been allowed to make 
public the principal part of what is a 
private communication. 

Mr. HIU has given great attention 
to the Question of exchange as il af- 
fects the trade of .Vmcrica with the 
Orient, and has on more than one 
occasion directed public attention to 
the causes that were operating to In- 
fluence the course of the development 
of that commerce. There was a time 
and it was not so very long ago, when 
the people of Kurope did not give eco- 
nomic conditions In Asia a serious 
thought, and those In America looked 
upon tl'.e Orient as a field to be ex- 
ploited when and how their enter- 
prise preferred. Events in recent 
years have been of a character to 
startle us all out of our complacency. 
We have begun to get hold of the 
Idea that perhaps the ciuestlon to be 
considered is not "What shall we do 
with Asia?", but "What will Asia do 
with us?" As Mr. Hill suggests, it is 
much easier to point out the danger 
than to devise the remedy. The en- 
actment of i)rohlbiti,ve tariffs against 
China would so disrupt all commer- 
cial and financial relations that the 
■world would be brought face to face 
•with the most tremendous crisis it 
has ever been called upon to encoun- 
ter. Mr. I-Iill contemplates the pos- 
sibility of a reduction in the standard 
iirUvrnif "ati'd ■cSnS^qifently "of the "rate 
of -wages until; the white man and the 
(yellow man are put upon an equality 
except so far as efficiency Is concern- 
ed. But we pointed out in a recent 
reference to this question that In the 
Iron mines and smelters of China the 
margin of efficiency between white 
and yellow labor Is found to be only 
about ten per cent, in favor of the 
former. We can readily suppose that 
with the development of manufactur- 
ing interests the standard of living 
and the rate of wages In China will 
appreciate, but that they will ever 
get within ten per cent, of tlie Euro- 
pean or American standard and rate 
Js so remote a contingency that for 
all practical purposes we may dismiss 
tho probability of its occurrenco from 
discussion. The most that could be 
hoped from such an appreciation 
would be to reduce the depreciation 
In our standards that would be neces- 
sary to put our producers on an e(iual 
footing 'with those of China. There 
remain the possibilities Involved in a 
change in monetary standards, which 
stated in simple words means the 
resiorationiiOfi silver., to its former 
valiie as a money, metal. Silver is the 
yellow man's mOney. Ho Is paid for 
his work in silver without any regard 
whatever to its gold value. Conso- 
queinUy, '.when "silver' falls In compari- 
son" with gold,- the wapres of the Chin- 
ese' operative becomes lower bv com- 
parison with those cariii;d b.v the 
white operative, but he does not de- 
mand more taels. It Is all the same 
to him wliothor silver In New Yorli 
or .liOndon Is worth 60 cents on $1 an 
ounce; but It Is not all the same to 
the hJghly-pald producer in the Occi- 
dent. He may .smile at the Chlii.-i- 
man, who will work for a month Cor 
what I he gets a day; but when the 
Chinaman comes to pay for the white 
man's products and finds his money 
worth very much le.'Js In white man's 
money than it used to be, he Is going 
to. do one of two things, and most 
likely both. He Is going to stop buy- 
ing the white man's products, or lie 
is going to make them for himself. 
3C ha only does tho former he Is going 
to ruin a great and prolltiible trade 
and thereby dislocate commerce and 
llnance; If he does the- latter, be is 
going In a ' short time to produce 
more than ho requires for his own 
use, atul the world Will be his slaugh- 
ter market. 

There' Is, •;nb use* In shutting our 
eyes to these corislderatlohs. They 
are the most Important economic con- 
siderations of the ])ri'r<ent day. China 
was content for ages to live behind 
her wall of Isolatiin; but ■ .^Europe 
first and, afterwards, America were 
not content that she should do so. 
But the men who opened China to 
tho rest of tlie world did not under- 
stiind tho Chinese people. Wo uro not 
quite aure thai wo nowadays undcr- 
ii' Biand.:Uiem.;;any-:.:b but at least 

wef lino^^ "With- 
out pursuing the ' subject further, we 



reproduce . Mr. , Hill's . letter. It Is as 
follows: ■ ■ * ■ ■ : .■ 
, "Your letter expresses forcibly and 
accurately tho practical effect of tho 
fall In exchange with the Orient, not 
only upon Its trade -with tho rest o£ 
tho world, but upon dOHiAstlo'v Indus- 
trial conditions In those 'btlier coun- 
tries as well. I have''' expressed very 
briefly my opinion of the -Importance 
of the matter In an article on Oriental 
Trade, published in the January num- 
ber of Tho ^Vo^ld'a AVork, a copy of 
which I -take pleasur& ln <aendiag---yo,iji 
herewith. In addition to niy own 
views I have ([uoted a letter from Mr. 
Morcton ]''re\ven. who has covered the 
subject exhaustively in a num.ber of 
articles published wlthlii. the,,last few 
years. Whatever one may ' think of 
JIi-. Frewen's general theory of mone- 
tary standards, his discussion of tho 
fall In exchange and Its economic 
consequences is quite valuable, being 
matter of fact and not all theory. 

"It seems to me that such facts as 
Your Lordshfp cites, which are now 
becoming familiar in the experience 
of every comitry and are affecting 
profoundly Industrial conditions 
throughout the world, call, as you say, 
for a good deal of scientific thinking.' 
.Vor will it be easy to discover and 
agree upon a remedy. The adjustment 
to each other of two civilizations dlt'- 
fcrlag not only In monetary standards 
and customs, but in wages, hours, 
standards of living, industrial methods 
and almost every physical and mental 
peculiarity that separates one race 
from anotlier, is a slow and difficult 
process. It will not bo acconiplislied 
uitliout some cost to us. 

"It appears certain that, as long as 
the workers of the Orient are content 
to accept silver at par for their 
low wage, while the merchant and 
manufacturer can sell their products 
abroad for gold and turn it into sil- 
ver at current rates of exchange, not 
only must exports to the Orient tend 
to decrease rather than Increase, but, 
as I have said In tho article referred 
to, it will presently be.come a question 
whether the markets of the world can 
bo saved from a competition stimulat- 
ed by exchange conditions that wo are 
powerless to control, 

"Undoubtedly this subject needs as 
much attention as la being bestowed 
upon the general rise of prices, with 
which it Is connected. It Is not under- 
stood or oven mentioned In the discus- 
sions of our time. But It will presently 
force itself • unpleasantly upon the 
notice of other countries not only in 
their changing trade balances with tho 
Orient, but In the appearance In their 
home markets of a competition with 
which they are unprepared to deal. 
The adoption of prohibitive 'tariffs 
against tho Orient, which implies re- 
taliation and the destruction of that 
trade; the reduction of standards of 
living and of wages In Other countries 
until tho difference between these and 
those of the Orient shall cover only 
the difference In efficiency of labor: 
and some form of agreement upon 
monetary standards and ratios that 
will equalize exchanges once more, are 
tho only remedial mea.sures that sug- 
gest them.selvop. The matter Is becom- 
ing sufficiently urgent to call for their 
earnest consideration. • • • 

Faithfully yours, 

JAS. J. HILL.

In 'speaking of Mr. Manh.o. few days 
ago, we said his career was .that of a 
hero of modern romance. In days of old, 
romance consisted chiefly In the exercise 
Of the powers Of destruction. The knight 
wont armed' oap-a-ple' and usually 
contrived to leave a red trail behind 
him. Our modern heroes go out witli 
full pockets, and mark their course 
with lines of steel. One thing is to 
bo noted in connection with ilr. Mac- 
kenzie's career and that of his col- 
league. They are not content with 
tho arena of transportation alone, but 
devote their great energy and their 
fur-aeeing sagacity to tho development 
of business, which their transportation 
lines can handle. 



Mr. Roosevelt will take and will 
give the country a rest. Both surely 
ni?cd it. 



It Is to bo ho,oed that the retire- 
ment of the French chef from the 
royal kitchen, will not disturb the en- 
tente cordlale. 



Tonight a meeting will be held In 
the A. O. U. W. Hall to tender a wel- 
come to Mr. G. H. Barnard, M.P., and 
hear What l-.e may have to say about 
the pcs.sion's work at Ottawa. The 
meeting will also bo addressed by Mr. 
McBrlde and Mr. Bowser, and the oc- 
casion will be an Interesting oile. The 
attendance will doubtless be large. 



We need hardly say that the refer- 
ence tn self-denial collections in the 
Colonist of .Sunday had no applica- 
tion to the praiseworthy efforts of the 
Salvation Army In that way. This 
Is recognized as ono of the legitimate 
means whereby tho Army carries on 
Its work, and it deserves and receives 
the cordial approval of the public. 



The Seattle spirit Is a flne ^thlng, 
but when It magnifies a flro which 
does less than half a million dollars' 
worth of damage and luirt.s no one, 
into a holocaust, which destroys from 
thirty or fifty more or less valuablo 
lives and. anywhere from one to two 
mlUlohs' worth of -property,-" enterprise 
seems to have got the bettor of dis- 
cretion. But Seattle has numaged 
to get tho eyes of the world concen- 
trated upon her for forty-eight hours, 
and that Is worth something. 



The correspondents telegraph that 
tho jicoplo of Germany are growing 
apprehensive of the personal extrava- 
gance of the Kaiser, Ho is person- 
ally a very rich man, but It Is said 
has spent his means with so prodigal 
a hand that lie has materially lessen- 
ed his private fortune. Now he has 
asked for and obtained larger grants 
for his personal use, and perhaps for 
the first time In GcriTinn history there 
seem to be complaints that the crown 
Is becoming too expensive a proposi- 
tion. 



MR. S. D. SCOTT 

British Columbia Journalism is for- 
tunate In that It Is to ho strengthened 

by tbe entry of Mr. S. I). Scott, of 
St. John, formerly editor of the Stan- 
dard, who is to assume the eililorship 
Of the News-Advertiser. .Mr. .Seotl 
has had a long newspaper experience. 
For some years he had charge of the 
St. John Sun, and under his manage- 
ment that Journal was one of the 
most active and aggressive newspa- 
pers in the country. When the Sun 
was purchased by the owners of the 
Dally Telegraph and amalgamated 
with it, Mr. Scott was i)laced In 
charge of the Standard, which was 
started to rc'iresent Conservative In- 
terests In the eastern city. Ho has 
flllei-l the post with groat credit to 
h!nisoU' and advantage! to the pulillc. 
.Mr. Scott has had tho bciielU of an 
experience in the gallery at Ottawa, 
and in very familiar with political af- 
fairs. 

He is a forceful writer, but Is al- 
ways fair, and his work Is" on a high 
plane. Personally he has always 
been very i)opular. and can well 

believe that his deijarturo from St. 
John win be much regretted by as 
many personal friends as political 
ones. We shall be glad to welcome; 
him to this western [jroviiico, to 
whoso development he %vill bo able to 
give valuable assistance by his able 
pen. 

MR. WILLIAM MACKENZIE 

The people of Victoria are always 
glad to sec Mr. William Mackenzie. 
This time special nterest attaches to 
his visit because it i.s hirgely in con- 
nection with the taking over of the 
Dunsmulr colliery -interests, which, will 
lead to his very • close "identification 
with the progress of Vancouver Island. 
Mr. Maikenzle has a standing In the 
financial world such as is enjoyed by 
few men, and the fact that he and 
those associated with him are about 
to Invest many millions In a great 
industrial enterprise here is an event 
of very great Importance. Hitherto 
the j)ropertles which he and his asao- 
elates are about to acquire have been 
in the hands of local people, and It Is 
with mixed feelings that we think of 
tho change; but there can bo, no doubt 
that the operations of tho now group 
of papItallBts may bo regarded as In 



Mr. Asqulth has officially announc- 
ed that he has Invited Mr. Balfour to 
a conference of the Lords' veto. The 
Invitation disproves the contention 
made by some of the British papers 
that the Prime Minister's*^ 'proposals 
are "an Irreducible minimum." It 
will be observed tliat Mr. .-Vsqulth 
has not stated that this invitation has 
been extended by the wish of the 
King, but we fancy It would not- bo 
doing His Majesty an Injustice to sug- 
gest that the Idea originated with" 
him. 



The destruction of the ofTice of the 

Montreal Herald by lire was an ex- 
ceedingly serious tragedy. Under 
ordU. iry circumstances we should feel 
like tendering an expression of re- 
grot to our contemporary, but the 
monetary loss is so insignificant In 
comparison with tho terrible loss of 
life that we can only think of the 
latter iinil sav' how grieved the peii- | 
j)le of C^anada will bo to learn that 
so many industrious worlcers were 
off In such a dreadful way. 

Tho news of the roliromont of Lord 
Kitchener from the Mediterranean 
command comes aS- a surprise, and 
explanations will be looked for with 
great interest. His nanio had linen 
connected with the vacant vice-royal- 
ty of India;' but we are not Informed 
if this was wjjh any show of authori- 
ty. It seems hardly llkoly that His 
Lordship would have resigned tho 
^Mediterranean command lu a fit of j 
pique because he had not been named 
as successor to Lord Minto, and 
therefore wo prefer not malting any 
comm°nt whatever upon the telegram 
received. 



All things come to those- who wait, 
If they only wait long enough. Tho 
seemingly Impossible Is about to haji- 
pen. Lo, these many years, div(!rs and 
sundry of His Majesty's lieges ha\-e 
Insisted that the rocky jiolnt that Juts 
out like a promonloiw Into the Estiul- 
malt road Just within -the .city limits, 
was a SbiircQ of dflng'or to them and 
every one else, who might have occa- 
sion to use that thoroughfare; liut the 
rock- renialnoil. Now let It be known 
to all men by these presents, that city 
workmen are iibout to remove it. ' Wo 
may now look for a solution of the 
water question some time, not to speak 
of the Sonehees Reserve. ' J

BETTER' TOWELS 

-and by "Better" Towels We 
Mean Towels That'll Stand 
Unusually Strenuous. 
Service 

In Summertime the towel is used more 
than at any other season. .There's so 
much more hard, strenuous use incident 
to morning "cold plunges", bathing at the 
sea shore and Summer camp; etc., that the 
towel miist be a good one to withstand 
this extra "strain." ... ... 

■We have an excellent choice of towels, 
and you'll find that they'll stand more 
use than most sorts. And the prices will 
compare most favorably with any quoted 
on any towels anywhere. 'We import 
them direct, hence these fair pricings.

this stock and choose a few just to test the

YOUR CAMP 

Should Have This Din- 
ner Set 

If there is any place; where, 
dinnerware is necessary it . is 
the Summer camp. Camp 

"works up" an excellent appe- 
tite. Perhaps you may say the 
"appetite" is strong enough to 
make the eatables taste 
"good" from any sort of table- 
ware. But we think not, and 
anyway the cost of a dinner 
service suitable for the Summer 
cottage or camp is so small 
that you might just as well en- 
joy its use. 

We have an interesting col-> 
lection of low-priced sets^suit-^' 
able for use in Summer camps, 
and we^ call especial attention, 
to some 98-piece sets in floral 
designs — ^choice' colorings — at, 
per sct-^, 

$7.50, $8 and $9 




The "open stock", idea-ih 'din- 
nerware appeals to the home- 
keeper who appreciates the 
convenience of being able to 
instantly replace broken pieces 
and to add to the service as 
necessity may require or "fi- 
nances" permit. 

16 Different Patterns 

We have 16 : different pat- 
terns in our "open stock" din- 
nerware. There's a choice that's 

broader tlian a great many 
stores offer in their entire line 
of dinnerware. Some real in- 
teresting patterns are offered, 
and we have these pieces in 
china or scmi-porcelain. 

Choose just as many pieces 
as you wish — add to them as 
you like. Spend a few cents or 
a iew dollars. Does that ap- 
peal to you?

A CLEANLY AGE 

Twentieth Century Ideas Incline To- 
ward Sanitation and Preventatives 

Nowadays scientists believe that In 
cleanliness lies the secret of- prevention 
of diseases. 

To prevent a disease, remoxe the 
cause. • 

Just ns unclean lialills breed many 
disease.'', .so carele.os habits will breed 
dandruff. Iinjiroijer use of anotlier's 
lirnslies, eoml)s, etc., will surely cause 
dandruff, iind. In time, will just as 
surely cause .baldness. 

It's microbic Infection, nothing more 
nor le.o?.

COIVlPETITI'Oi\I 



ROSE GROWING 



Different Districts to Make Effort to 
Carry off Prizes at Forthcoming 
Annual Show. 



There will bo consldorablo competi- 
tion among the different di.stricts for 
the honor of carryng off the largest 
number of prixos at tho forthcoming 
rose show which Is to be held on the 
2-lth inat. Oaic Bay will make a strong 
bid for lirst place. There are a large 
number of growers In tlmt district 
promiuont among tliom being H. 
Bcaven the president of. the Horticul- 
tural Society, Judge Ijampman, Percy 
Wollaston, F. B. Pemberton, and A. J. 
Bland. 

There was onco an Idea prevalent 
that ro.ses conld bo grown only on land 
that had a clay subsoil. This was ex- 
ploded long ago and roses are now 
grown In Victoria on gravel, rock, 
clay, sand, or any combination of the 
four. A:j long as they arc fertilized and 
watered they seem to do well enough, 
and many jieople do not even water 
but cultivate well Instead. At Oak Bay 
the soil is very light yet the roses 
thrive a.s well ns anywhere in the city. 

Esquimalt has a number of rose 
growers who will exhibit, and James 
Bay also has some. There is aso the 
more central district surrounding Fort 
and Belcher streets. The last men- 
tioned district Is rather early and 
many of the rosea grown therjB are 
over hefore the day of the. show, but 
the exhibitors prune hard and late in 
order .to keep ithem back. 

Competition is Itkely to be keen all 
round this year. X number of nev? 
people have already notifled the sec- 
realary of their Intention to show. If 
their roses are ready at the time, and 
the prospects are that the biggest and 
best show ever held will be the result.

at S:45 p. m. 

Tho late ilr. Caippbell was a native 
of Guernsey, Ohio,' and received his ed- 
ucation at Huntington, Indiana. He re- 
mained in the United States for some 
time, carrying qn 'the trade of a cooper.

ing this he had large property Inter" 
osts in the Interior, particularly in' 
Kamloops, wher^,' he -ipi^ned some of tho 
most valuable^ real estate -in the city. 

Mr. Campbell waifii vtfry line type of 
man and wtfs 'highW cSfeemed by all 
with whom.he oaVWlii coiitBCt. He was 
an active worker in the Presbyterian 
church. He was -also. a. valued member

Although he had been In the province 
for the last 62 years, tho late Mr. 
Campbell has never, been without It.s 
boundaries except fo'r an occasional trip 
tt) the neighboring part of tho United 
.-states, and It was very seldom that he 
even left Kamloops to come to the 
coast, only doing so . when compelled. 
When he arrived in the city about thrco 
weeks ago to enter St. Joseph's liospi- 
tal, it proved to be his last. During tho 
lime which he has been a patient hero 
there has jiover been the slightest hope 
of his recovery, . and his friends knew 
that his life could be prolonged for only 
a very short, period. 

At the tlmp. of hj^ death there was 
present only "one iheipbef of his family, 
his daughter, Mrs.i'Busd, who has been 
in the city with l}cr father during the 
tlmo ho has been, "receiving treatment 
at the local hospital- Besides Mrs. 
Busa there survived 'him a widow, four 
sons and another daughter. There are 
also several; . grandc^ldron .and great 
grandchildren. Mr. ^. D. Mclntyre, his 
Bollcitor, from Karoloops, was also In 
the city at the time -of -his death, at- 
tending: to- his- affairs,' 

The remains were removed, to Hanna's 
parlors, from wherfi'^thcy were shipped 
on Sunday afternoon by the Prince.i.s 
Victoria to Vancouver and thence to 
Kamloops, where Interment will iake 
place. Mrs. Bus's and Mr. Mclntyre ac-

Have you ever witnessed tho Hun- 
garian danco'.' If not, don't fail to 
attend Pantages this week, and seo 
the Hartmann. If you have, be sure 
and go anyway, for the Hartmans arc 
the best Hungarian dancers that | 
have ever appeared In America. This i 
act Is a decided no-velty to Victoria j 
audiences, and well worth seolng If | 
there wasn't anything else on the bill 
—but there Is several other big fea- 
tures. The Anderson four, for In-i 
stance, in a nilnlat\ire musical comedyl 
'Mlachlevous Bob," replete with ex- 
cellent Juiivenilo singing and dancing! 
and laughable comedy. 

Bob Hendricks, the musical man, 
kept last night's audience In a state 
lot continuous laughter during hl.s 
performance, while Mary Grey was 
exceedingly entertaining with a very 
clever budget of German stories and 
songs." Good moving pictures closed 
a very good show. 

.Nevy'.prand Theatre 
■An att that can score 'OS many 
hearty latighs nis Joe F. Wlllard, Har- 
ry Bond and their warhorac, "Dovll- 
sfcin," did last night, has not been 
played here this season. Tho audi- 
ence laughed, -screamed, laughed 
again, and then laughed some more, 
went into convulsions and nearly had 
liyBtorla over the funny situations 
and complications that Harry Bond 
as the captain got .7oo F. Wlllard, as 
"Philip Schlltz," the German war cor- 
respondent, into. The act is excru- 
ciatingly funny, and is well presented 
as to military detail, costuming, stage 
setting, etc. 

Polly ^Vlggle.•^ had the audience In 
screams of laughter, also. Her real 
name is Helen Stuart. She wears 
long plaits, diamond hose and an 
original first century costume. Not 
quite sure about the Ilrst century, 
it might have been the second cen- 
tury, but It Is certain such a I'alment 
had not been invented' up to the time 
of liOiils XVI. •■ Polly gets the house 
from the first moment and never loses 

it. ■ :.\.''''.: 'a 

Otto ana'E(nllK ;Mets!. present a high 
class singing, novelty. " They sing a 
number, of old songs which tho audi- 
ence woulifl gladly remain and listen 
to for an hour. The pair were ap- 
preciated to. the full, and had they 
lieon ivilllng ' to gl'Ve encoifos would 
have been listoried ', to' with 'groat sat- 
isfaction. 

R'lves, a soubrette with a plctur- 
osciue figure and no voice does not 
make good In her first two numbers, 
but in her toe dance she recovers lost 
ground and gets ahead of the audi- 
ence, but the climax of the act brings 
down the house In roars of laughter. 
R'lves was undoubtedly a hit. 

Mabel Mooroe is the woman with the 
most reniarkable muscular develop- 
ment. Possessing exceptional arm 
and shoulder development she is a 
girl to be avoided If there Is likely to 
bo a row. Her trnpezo work was ex- 
cellent, she performing all the hard 
feats that are generally loft to the 
male order of entertainer. Thomas J. 
Price sang ti lovely song for children, 
the words of which are those of elder- 
ly people, and' there were tho moving 
pictures to end a good slio^v. 

IVIAJ.E8T'|C THEATRE 

Monday and Tuesday 

The Unchanging Sea — Thtre la per- 
haps no work from tlie pen 6f tlie em- 
inent English clergyman and poet, 
Charles Klngsley, better known than 
his tragic poem, "Tlie Three Fishers." 
Its a story of sympathetic Interest. A 
young married couple are living hap- 
l>ily in the little fishing village, and 
at the opening of the story the young 
husband Is one of the 
Three fishers went sailing away to 

the >Vest, 
Away to', the West as the sun went 

down.- 

Each tliiought on the woman who loved 

hini best 
And the women stood watching them 

out of. the town. 
For men must- work and women must 

weep, 

And there's little to earn and many 
to keep, 

Thougli the harbor bar be moaning. 

As the days rolled by the "three 
wives sat up In the lighthouse tower 
. . Tiiey looked at the squall, and 
they looked at the shower," but no sign 
of their husbands' return could bo 
seen. Ah! little did tliey know that 
on a distant shore "three fishers lay 
out on the shining sands. In the morn- 
ing gleam as the tide went down." 
\Vhen the rescue party brings the 
flshors in they find life in one, tho 
young husband. With the tender care 
of the folk in tlie distant laud lie re- 
gains his health; but his memory is a 
blanlj. All efforts to recall the jiast 
prove futile. Meanwhile, his poor 
wife, with her baby, sits ga-/.lng out 
to the sea, still hopeful of his return, 
l)ut in vain. Tile years roll by, and 
lii'i- child grows into young wonian- 
liood to be courted by one of the young 
fi.sliermeii of the' coast village, and It 
Is U)ion tlio day that the young counlo 
are preparing for their wedding that 
tlie long lo.st husband, having started 
out to sea onco more lands on tho 
shore of hla native village. The fam- 
lllor scenea restore his memory. It 
stems to him ttiat It was only on the 
yeterday he left, and he rushes eag- 
erly along the co.rst to meet liia wife. 
Tlicre he stands, ever hopeful. At 
first they hardly reixignize each other, 
time having wrought such a change, 
but enwrapped in each othorg' arms 
they realize fate's Injunction: 
For men niust work and' vyopen must 

weep,-'"' I ■ "- , .' ' ■ 
And tho sopner It's over the, so.dner to 

sleep, ■ ■ ' ■ • 
And good -byi^tp, 'the bar' and .its moan- 
ing.

exceptional; the yther films pro:,

scintilating comedy; "The Pirate's

out the grpnt scheme. As for geogra- 
phy, there are but few lessons in which 
tho teacher cannot Iind an oi)portunlty 
of showing the greatness of tho re- 
sources and the extent of the Empire. 
It Is such teaching that gives Empire 
Day Its value, and'tlie work that may 
be done in the schools in this way la 
fi'.r more important than any demon- 
strations, however imijoslng or oltibor- 
ate. This does not, however, make tho 
setting apart of one day on which tho 
thoughts all, young and old, shall 
be si)cclally directed towards the Kin- 
plre, with all Its glorious traditions, lt« 
present grctitness and its , future jjoa- 
sibllitles .-unnecessary. There are but 
too many occasions oh, which the faults, 
the weaknesses- and the failure.s of men 
and women, not only 1^ Canada;* but in 
tho. Jiother I,ahd-and''du'r sftfer oolon-^ 
i<-H, pass under, review. It Is not too 
soon now to begin to prepare to study 
what has been done, rather than what 
has been left undone. It Is in thi.s wny 
that the keeping of Empire Day can bn 
.made a real help to the closer union 
which Is the dreanir of some of tho 
greatest men of our time. 

The Medical Association, which met 
a few days apro In Toronto, passed a 
resolution asUinf? the Dominion gov- 
ernment to establish a laboratory for 
the purpose of mtinufaeturlng anti- 
toxin and iitlier sera, to be dlstrliiuted 
at cost tliroughnut Canada. Tln^ 
mover of the resolution was Dr. Pagan. 

The supplies of the antl-to.\ln. so 
necessary In treating diptherin, lome 
from Kngland and France, as well as 
from the United States. It is said that 
In the long transit the virtues of this 
very valuable remedy Is sometimes Im- 
paired. While It Is hot stated that the 
high cost of tho antl-toxin prevents Its 
use. It cannot but be felt that the. pub- 
lic would ijront greatly If by the. pro- 
posed plan the price would be greatly 
lessened and Its pin-|ty be guaranteed, 
Tlie Toronto Mall and Empire says: 

"JCven If antl-to.\-ln were supplied by 
private enterprise at lower prices than 
those now charged, there would still bo 
reasons for tho Government's concern- 
ing itself In the business. The Gov- 
ernment should assume the responsi- 
bility for the purity and high (iiialltv 
of the serum. It cannot guarantiee any 
over whoso production It has no con- 
trol. The Sledlcal Association point.s 
to the only way." 

We are all too apt to forget how 
much we owe the men who have made 
the Kreat discoveries which have 
robbed such diseases as diptberia and 
cholera of tlieir terrors, and those 
olher.s who are now seeking for reme- 
dies for cancer and consimiptlon and 
the many other plagues which still 
threaten the llveS of men and women.

-Vbout a fiuartcr of , a century ago 
Canadian girls in search of emjiloy- 
mei'l dlsc'overed that in the hospitals 
of Xew Vork and Boston, as well as 
In m.-iny other Eastern cities, there 
was a demand for strong, well-edu- 
cated girls. From every province of 
Eastern Caitada- hundreds of girls 
went to train as nurses. JIany of 
these were the (laughters ot men who 
Iiad once been in good circumstances. 
They h.id never expected to work for 
their living till death or misfortune 
showed them that they must rely on 
their own resources, not only for their 
own livelihood, but often, for the uup- 
l)ort of others, Some of these girls 
had not the education that would 
liave i-nal)led them to obtain a teach- 
er's eertllicate, even If they had the 
inclination to adoi)t that calling. But 
tliey hail a good homo training, much 
rellnement, sound .constitutions and n 
fair share of saving common sense. 
They were very .successful and like 
tlu-ir brothers in other Holds made tho 
mime of L'anadi;in one of honor. As 
the years went on such girls found, 
at home an opportunity to leant and 
j)ractice their chosen profession, for 
hospitals were opened in the towns 
and cities of Canada. ■ 

For tho more important and respon- 
sible positions, however, a train- 
ing In one of. the larger hos- 
pitals was looked. upqn as. a neces- 
sary qualiflcacion, ,and nurses came 
back from the States bringing knowl- 
edge and experlstice. with them. This 
happened a few daj-s .ago In Toronto. 
Miss Roblna St&tyart, a native of 
(.Jiielpli, graduated at Johns Hopkins 
Hospital In Baltimore in 1901, and af- 
ter lining many, responsible position.';, 
spent four years as head of tho 
.N'urses' Training School of the .Mle- 
ghany Hospital, Pittsburg. Miss 
Stewart hits now been appointed Lttdj- 
Superintendent of the Toronto General 
Hospital Training School. Sticb Can- 
adians are always welcome back to 
tlieir native laiiii: It is noteworthy 
that no nialtei- how excellent the ser-

that they recognize that moat of the

Court of Appeal 

Rex vs. Watt. — This was a motion 
for leave to appeal and for an order 
directing tho trial judge, Gregory, .1., 
to state a caai* for the opinion of tho 
Court of Appeal. In October, 1901), 
the accused was arraigned at the 
Nanalmo assizes on a charge ot mur- 
der. Counsel for the Crown, .W. J. 
Tiiylor, XC.C, then moved, under sec- 
tion 967 of the Code, for an Inquiry 
as to tho sanity of the accused, stat- 
ing that In his, , counsel's, opinion, 
from the evidence in his possession, 
tills point should be cleared up, in 
justice to the accused, before he was 
pn; on trial. 

.\')fman, for tho accused, objected, 
and after argument, the then Judge 
of .assize, Clement, .1., stood the case 
ovcf 'to' the sjjring assizes, saying 
"there will (then) bo that preliminary 
trial first to determine. Of course 
when that time arrives there may 
not be any doubt about his sanity, or, 
on !bo other hand, there may not be 
i>ny doubt' about his insanity." 

The case came on for trial at the 
spring assizes, In May, when a ver-- 
dij- of manslaughter was returned, 
and beloro tho verdict was roeordod, 
Alkman, for the .'accused, objected that 
tiie Inquiry directed by Clement, .1., 
should have been held before tlie 
trial. The objection was over-ruled; 
lience this motion. 

Alkman, In support of the motion: 
Tiie trial on the Indictment could not 
t'lke 1 !act until after the holding of 
the inquiry Into the prisoner's sani- 
ty, as directed by Clement, J. It 
was not the duty of counsel for the 
accused to raise the point, as the In- 
quiry had been asliod for by the 
c'rown. We did not consent to any- 
.thlng, and even if wo did, the accus- 
ed Is not prejudiced thereby. 

Irving, J. A.: You had not pleaded 
to the indictment before Clement, J., 
when the Inquiry was asited for and 
directed; and then you came before 
CJregory, J., and pleaded? 

Yes. Ot course the plea of not 
guilty raises all questions of Juris- 
t diction, " The Crown having moved 
•■the -GDurt for an order directing an 
Inquiry as to sanity, should have i^ro- 
ceeded with that order. 

.Maclean, KvC, (D. A.-G.), for the 
Crown, contra:-, This is -a matter of 
lirocodure' solely, and not of jurisdic- 
tion. The objection should have been 
taken before the trial- was gone into, 
and counsel for accUsed cannot stand 
by and take' chances of an acquittal, 
but when a verdict goes against tho 
iiccused, then raise an objection of 
this kind. Tho order that was made 
was doubtless that an inquiry should 
be held as to the prisoner's sanity 
at the time he was up for trial. The 
judge could have made such an order 
then, and then traversed the trial on 
the Indictment to the next assiizes. 

Alkman, In reply: The statute says 
a certain thing must be done when 
the order is made That has not been 
done, and the accused Is in'cjudlced. 

.Martin, J. A.; How can you be 
prejudiced by an impossibility? That 
orderi was exhausted by eflluxlon of 
time. The Investigation must be 
made then, at the time of tho trial, to 
decide the man's sanity to stand or 
be put on his trial. This w:is not 
<lone by that Judge or l)y that Jury at 
that time How can It be done now, 
or how can this Court help you? 

The Judge went be.vond the law here 
and directed an Issue to bo hud at tho 
following assizes. In. doing so wo 
say ho erred, and .did us substantial 
wrong. 

Macdonald, C. J. A.: I think the 
motion must be dismissed. What tlie 
learned Judge really did. It seems to 
me, was to direct counsel how they 
should proceed at the next assizes. 

Irving, J. A.: The object of section 
907 was to secure a fair trial to the 
accused. Provision is made to raise 
a (piesllon of sanity at any Lime be- 
fore the \'ei-d!ct is given; or he m.-n- I 
be tried on that iioint before the jury | 
Is sworn. It Ihereforo seems to he 
a matter of procedure. Wlicn ,-1 man I 
is represented liy counsel, and tlio I 
prisoner is ctilled uiion to jiload to 
the Indictment, if the counsel relies j 
on the question of tho man's sanity, | 
it is ills duty to bring it before tlin | 
judge, and If he sits still and iuits ' 
hiiii.5eif before the jury, he practically 
says he is ready for trial and his 
client Is cnpiihle of advising him. I 
thlnlt In the iiresent case counsel 
I)ractieally elected to v.-aivo and aban- 
don any order that was made before 
.■md agreed tliat the matter siiould 
go to trial. I do not think that any 
injustice has been done, and that the 
ai>idlontlon should be refused. 

Martin, J. A., agreed that tho mo- 
tion should be dismissed tor reasons 
to tie handed down In writing. . 

Galllher, J. A., having somo uncer- 
tainty as to what order ■was meant 
by Clement, J.,' did not feel'llko dla-. 
agreeing with' the conclusion ai-rlvod 
•at by the other members of the Court.

Following: tho success of Victoria's 
Rugby players nnd .trocU athletes, the 
local lacrosse boys are out to win ilio 
championship, and have made a cretllt- 
ablo start on the way to victory and tlio 
Kilmarnock trophy. 

That Victoria has a bettor chance tills 
year of winning the championship than 
for yonra past Is evident from the fact 
that' the Vancouver amateur twclvo 
downed the Salmon Dollies at Vancouver 
on Saturdaj', As tho Vancouver wohbcd 
Btlclc -wlelders were completely smotlier- 
ed by the local twelve here on May 2 lti>, 
it looks bright for the Capital city 
twelve. 

One week from the comlne Saturday 
VIot9rla will send tho best twelve play- 
ers fn- tho city to New Westminster to 
cross 'sticks with the' aggregation of that 
town, and the locals are leuvliig no stoao 
unturned to make the trip a .succes.sful 
one. The local clubs ai-o practising 
hard and getting Into great fjhapc. Tlio 
senior city !e:-.giio games are being play- 
ed regularly, and from the cream of tlie 
material In the varlou.s twelves, the re- 
presentative t(!am will bo selected. The 
samo selection committee Is being re- 
tained for the next game, this commlttoo 
boins: Sam Lorlmer, chairman. Clover- 
dale; James Dakers, North Ward; and 
Qeorse Okell, Victoria West. The next 
oUy .leaguo match will bo played toii}or- 
row night, when the North Ward cracks 
willAbattle against the Cloverdalea at 
tiie Royal Athletic park, and any of tho 
Victoria lacrosse fans who want to tree a 
line on some of the Victoria material 
would do well to take a little Jog up 
thero and see the way sonic of the sturdy 
young material that Is developing and 
which some day shovild bring back la- 
crosse glory to Victoria that Is much 
needed. 

Meeting Tonight 
Secretary John P. Sweeney wants a 
full attendance of the executive of the 
Victoria lacrosse club on deck this evuii- 
Ing, as there are several Important mat- 
ters that are to be brouylit up regarding 
tho affairs of tho club that need Immoill-

Injustice to . the^-ceginiental team, 
however, it musifc/^hes stated that sev-

For the losers Camsusa and Klnlook 
formed the tiattery, the former letting 
the heavy-hitting Hills off with only 
seven hits, striking out nino of his 
opi)ononts. Townsley and Scott were 
on tho points for tho IIlll team, tho 
I'onnor pitching a very steady game, 
striking out twelve of his opponents, 
and allowing them Ave hits. 

The game was very interesting from 
a si^ectators .standpoint, but the last 
two Inning.s had to be played in soml- 
darkneas, owing to a delay In starting 
tho game until after seven o'clock, al- 
though all league llxturos are supposed 
to start at C.30 o'clock. If tho players 
Intend to make these games popular 
It will be necessary for them to .start

IGFiSHER FLY 



Thoro seems to be some doubt In 
certain quarters as to tho distinction 
between amateurism and professional- 
ism as laid down by tho C.A.A,U., with 
which body Is alllUated the B.C.A.A.U. 

A contemporary asserts, rather dog- 
matically, tlian an amateur becomes a 
professional It, he. goes out in a field 
and Iclcks .th&,ptgsldn about with one 
who is In. the bablt of accepting pay 
for playing . that or any other, game. 
This is Incorrect.. . 

It a number of amateur men go out 
and meet some pros, in a match that Is 
a pure exhibition, a game where thero 
are no gate receipts or Is not Included 
In some regular schedule, their stand- 
ing Is just as unsullied after tho con- 
test as it was before tho whistle l>Iew. 
Tho more mixing on a soccer, lacrosse, 
or any o'.her athletic Held doesn't make 
tho amateur "Ipso facto," to use the 
.•nlltod term employed by the concern 
to which this has special reference, 



tho widening- part of the scheme was 
to bo paid for on a frontage basis, but 
this was hold to ■ bo moat Incqjiltablo 
and tho assessment basis was decided 
upon. 

•liast night's meeting thoroughly dis- 
cussed tlie whole matter, and while 
thoro wns some objection to tho 
scheme. It was decided that tho rc- 
qiilaltlon as presented, calling on the 
city to undertake tho work according 
to the plan as outlined above for ap- 
portioning the cost should be circulated 
among uU owners, and If a majority In 
numbers and value favored tho scheme, 
the co.uncU should go ahead with it. 

As.esplal|ied..last. njisht by Alderman 
Banner,iT4an,..tJio.-eostoIthe^ pavement 
and sidewalM;Iwoiiia_, amount'; to. about 
$15 per front' ?OOK^;,Iri',.the. o«l88 of t 
oxpropflation , prp"(j^ed|iigs:';.TYhere ,tho 
cost wtia based on the',' as'se'sserl value 
of tho property to bo benefitted, it has 
been estimated that to .compensate 
owners, for tho property taken, flx up 
such buildings as have to be moved, 
and. In fact, fully completing tho 
scheme, will cost 5130,000, on an .is- 
.sesaed vnluo of tho holdings afCoctod 
of $535,000. 

The city, engineer Kubmittod figures 
showing that tho cost of oxproprlatlon 
would he, for land, $91,200, nnd for Im- 
provements, $40,G01, while tho cost of

someone turned In tho fire alarm from 
a nearby box. Tho first ladder was on 
tho scenp within two minutes, and the 
firemen found tho windows of the up- 
per flats crowded with people, with 
tho crowd on tho outside urging them 
not to Jump. No one jumped. Lad- 
dor after ladder as It arrived was 
quickly placed in position and thoso In

Little Girl's Bravery. 
There were somo real examples of 
heroism, A ladder was hoisted reach- 
ing the fourth floor, tho one on which 
the bindery , wag. located. It camo 
near one window and. not far away 
from another.' From the latter a little 
girl crept along the coping until she 
could roach tho ladder. This she 
grasped with one hand and with the 
other lent a helping hand to girls al- 
most- twice her size. When all the 
girls had reached the ladder and had 
been brought down to safetv she came 
down also. By this tlmo fire had 
started, and smoke was pouring from 
the front window, through which she 
was compelled to group hor way. 
When she reached the bottom Of 'the 
ladder she fainted, 

A dozen injured people were brought 
from the ruins by-the,flriBmen many'wltlii 
broken limbs.. Or these rescues, th'oit'of

men reached tho building Vlijal 'was 
heard groaning by the firemen, pinned 
under a girder which ho could not dis- 
lodge. Thoro was nothing to bo done 
but to cut it away. Despite tho fact that 
tho flames wore crooplng perilously near. 
Firemen Godbout, Beauclero and Deajar- 
dins labored at the task. In tho crowd 
outside was Hcv. Father Tilartln. When 
ho heard of the fight agaiii.st death that 
was being waged against doubtful odds, 
ho went Into tho building and adminis- 
tered tho last rlghtfl of the church to tho

the beam was cut through and Vldal re- 
leased, not a moment too soon. Both hla

of the going, the trip was uneventtni. 
bar tho killing of a bear. Mr, ICing 
Is most optlmlBtlo "over the enterprise 
with which he is Identined. 



allows himself to be drawn Into regu 
lar competition in which protea.'ilonals 
aro participating. The distinction Is 
clear and 'almple. 

Therefore If, as ' is emphatically 
stated, there was no gate receipt or 
stake for the recent' match between 
Vancouver pros, and Nahaimo, the lat- 
ter do not become of the former's class 
as a result of that performance. 

At present, however, no one in Vic-

status of the Nnnaimo soccerltes. Tlio 
Island championship series have been 
completed and tho titles go to Lady-

will right themselves. They look to

DISCUSS 'SCHEME 

Fort Street Owners Moot City Council 
and Go Into Method of Meet- 
ing Cost, 

If the majority of tho owners on Fort 
street, between Douglas and Cook 
streets, ajiprovo of tho method of as- 
sessing for the cost of the street widen- 
ing schcnio, the work will bo proceeded 
Willi. A requlaltlon signed by a num- 
ber of owner.s was read at the meeting 
of the city council last night, at which 
some forty owners wer& present for tho 
inu-pose of discussing with the council 
the scheme of assessment a.s sulimltted 
by the latter body. The matter was 
gone into at length, somo ot tho owners 
objecting to tho scheme being obliga- 
tory on the whole street botweon Doug- 
las and Cook streets. Thoy thought 
It would bo betted If It were so ar- 
ranged that whgre the majority of tho 
owners in a- bIqcK.j were against the 
improvement proposition they could 
stay out of it. 

Tho city engineer and assessor sub- 
mitted a report showing just what each 
owner will have to pay for the payo- 
nieut !ind sidewalks, tho estimated 
value 01' tlie land to bo ox])roprlatod 
for street widening, tho amount to bo 
allowed In compensation for such prop- 
erty and the net cost to the owner of 
the .■K'heme. The idea Is to cliargo the 
co.Ht of tli(3 pavemen-; and sidewalks on 
a froiitiigu basis, but tho cost of tho 
exiiroprlntlon proceedings, tho compen- 
sallon to bo given by tho city to tho 
owners, and other charges in connec- 
tion therewith. Is to bo charged on the 
basis of the assossablu value of the 
property. By this method tho more 
valuable the property Is tho more It 
win pay towards tho scheme. At first 



reporter^',., room.'extehdtng to the rear. 
John c;"WalsH, .th'e'.edlt'or of the Herald, 

was sitting at his desk when ho Heard 
tho crackling sound previously referred 
to. Ho looked up nnd from the opening 
Into tho local room saw the beams In the 
celling disappearing ono after another. 
Mr. Walsh Joined the other members of 
the staff on tho window coping, from 
which ho was rescued by firemen. 

Fred Maloney, a llnotyper, has tho ma- 
chine located farthest from tho Victoria 
KQuare windows of the room. Ho arose 
from the chair, and as he did so tho ma- 
chine on which ho had been working dis- 
appeared from view. The break stop- 
ped JuBt where his chair was placed. 

James Coady, a pressman working on 
the second floor, fell through to the first. 
He thlnlcs the press fell with him. Land- 
ing, he found hiniselfnext to a glass par- 
tition separating thb main Job press room 
from the business office. -Breaking hi.s 
way through ho escaped by tho front 
door. 

Alfred Bolduc was working In tho en- 
graving department on the .second floor. 
When the crash came a girl named Ste- 
phenson was standing beside him. As tho 
floor fell she gavo a scream. They went 
down with the floor, from w-hlch thoy 
were rescued. Bolduc w-ith a broken arm. 

The lire started from tho stereoty- 
ping department, the coals from tho 
furnaces evidently being distributed 
on the different doors through which 
the pots passed on tholr way to tho 
basement, tor tho fire appeared to 
start almost simultaneously on all tho 
floors. Later It broke out In the 
front of tho bulld'ng, presumably 
from the Ignition of tho gaa uupply of 
the linotype machines which went 
through the floors. 

Where Fault Lay. 
The cause of the disaster was plain- 
ly the fault of tho supiiorts of tho 
tank of tho sprinkler system. This 
tank was located about tho centre ot 
tho building a little to tho rear. Tho 
building h.as a frontage of about sixty 
feet and was an old structure, re- 
modeled for the purposes of tho news- 
paper^ and It.s job department. Or- 
iginally Vwo stores, it hi'avy stono wall 
ran through tho centre from front to 
roar. From this dividing wall to tho 
sldo wall ,a steel girder had been plac- 
ed and on this the tank rested. As 
the tank was found on tho other sldn 
of tho wall from that on which It 
was placed, tho sujiposltlon Is that 
this ccntro wall gave way. 

Chief Tremhiuy of the firo depart- 
ment was most initspnkGn. "To put a 
water tank on the roof of an old build- 
ing like that," he declared "was noth- 
ing short of eriniinal." 

'Building Inspector Ohausse on the 
other hand nt;ited he had oxaniliierl t/e 
bulUlliig when somo changes vvre 
mndi! II. >ear a.gn, and found ever.v- 
tlilng all right, tho architects certify- 
ing that it jvas safe.. . ■ • 

Tho building was .valued at ?150,000 
and was owned by . the., ;HeraId com- 
pjiny, whlln the valuation of tho plant 
is placed at $-300,000, . A'bout half tho 
Iinot.\-j)e ba.»lng did not fall, the onlv 
damage being from water, and It la 
bellevcil that tho nowsplipor prosaos. 
two .machines which were located In 
the 'Ijasement near the Victoria .Sciuaro 
frontage, were not seriously damaged. 

The remainder of tho plant is hopo- 
losaly damaged. The Insurance on tho 
building and plant totalled $177,000. 
It Is estimated that tho insurance lia- 
bility iviU re.acli aibout aixty per cent 
of this amount.

StowaWays .Found Hidden on 
' River Clyde When She 

Reached Tacoma — Oanfa 
Coming to Discharge Today 



"When the steamer River Clyde of 
tho Weir line reached Tacoma after 
dlBoharglng her cargo at Victoria and 
Vancouver, five Chinese were found 
on board secreted In the bunkers, and 
otticers of the steamer contend that 
they must liuvo been brought on board 
at Vancouver for the purpose of be- 
inr- Burroptltlously landed In the Unit- 
ed States. This contention not be- 
ln(j proved, the Tacoma Inmilgratlon 
uuthorltles have ordered the deporta- 
tion of the (ivo to China at the ex- 
pense of the line. 

When the River Clyde was nenrlnsr 
Tacoma the steamer Oanfa from Vic- 
toria for that port overhauled her 
nnd there was a race with the privi- 
lege of takliig the only vacant berth 
as the prly.o, Tlie River Clyde pa.sKcd 
<iuarantlnc at Port TownHend a:i hour 
In advance of the Oanfa, but the Blue 
I'^unnel liner went by her and won tlie 
raco I).v a narrow margin. 

The Oanfa la expected at the outer 
wharf tills morning, returning from 
Tacoma to discharge tlu; cargo con- 
signed to this jiort. The cable steam- 
er Kostorer will be brought to the 
outer wharf I'rom lisquimalt today 
nnd moored alongside tlio big Holt 
freighter to receive on board If) miles 
of cable for the C. P. ' R. Telegraph 
Company, which is lo be laid by thi? 
Restorer between Deimrture Bay and 
Point Grey during the next few days. 
After taking thci cable on board the 
Restorer will steam toward Point Grey 



and will moor the shore end- oC'about 
a mile and a half of cable on a scoW; 
at Spanlsh'iCBank. . She will .then 
steam to Departure Bay, dropping the 
balance of the cable In the Gulf dur- 
ing the passage. The Oanfa has 
about 1,800 tons of general freight 
for this port. 

Long With Line 
Capt. ConradI, of the Oanfa, has 
been In command of steamers of this 
line fur over 22 years. His first, ves- 
sel was the old Oolong,' now Bucen- 
taur, which came to the North Pacific 
coast la ' the' vearly'^nlhatleB. tiater 
he was appointed to command the 
Moyune and then the Pakllng. which 
ran for the United States Government 
to the Philippines. For one voyage 
ho commanded the steamship Tanta- 
lus of the Blue Funnel line, which, 
though belonging to the British lino, 
sailed under the Dutch Hag from Ant- 
werp and Liverpool to Java. In Oc- 
tober, IflOl, Capt. Conradi took the 
Pdue Funnel liner Keemun and has 
been with her ever since. IIo ob- 
tained ills Urst sea experience in the 
famous clipper tea ship Black Prince, 
being first apprentice and later third 
mate. The Black Prince traded from 
London to China and Japan, and later 
from London to Austr.illa. She made 
niany fast voya.ges In the days when 
It was of the utmost Importance to 
get the llrst cargoes of the China tea 
crop to market In quick time. An- 
other sailing vessel on which Capt. 
Conradi served was the British bark 
Zenobla. He had command of the 
Zenobia when she'ran between London 
and India. 

The steamer Monteaglo of the C. P. 
R. Is the only inbound liner from the 
J'-ar East expected this weelc, being 
duo about Friday next from Hongkong 
and the usual ports of call, including 
Shimlzu, the tea shipping port of 
S(mth Japan where calls are made by 
the Oriental liners during the tea sea- 
son. The Monteaglo has 450 Chinese 
passengers. 

The Canadian-Australian liner 
Manuka will sail from the outer wharf 
on Friday for the Antipodes, and will 
carry about 170 passengera, seventy

HOMER GOING. ' - 

to SEAL ISLANDS 



Will Take Special Agent of United 
States Government and Supplies 
to Pribyloff Rookeries. 



Bound to the Pribyloff Island seal 
rookeries tho steamer Homer left San 
Francisco yesterday uriSor~' charter to 
the United States' Government, She 
took AV, I. liOmbky, special ' agent ' of 
the. United States' Government on the 
Islands, and supplies for tho govern- 
ment employees and natives. Tho 
lease of the North Araerlcin Com- 
mercial Company of the rookeries ax-- 
pired in April and was not renewed. 
A number of the lessee's employes 
will be re-engaged by tho government 
and a naturalist wlil bo Installed to 
nmlje studies ot' seal and blue fox 
life with a view of Improving the 
breeds. A limited number of bache- 
lor seals win hi' killed hy tho govern- 
ment on the rookeries this season and 
each .season hereafter. 

Regarding the action of the ^Vash- 
luytuii guverninent concerning the 
seal rookeries tlic I'^ir Trade Review 
of New York says: 

"Our correspinulent Is Informed by 
Deput.v Commissioner of Fl.sheries, 
Br. Hugh ^l. .Smith, that the killing 
jirlvilege will not be leased at pres- 
ent, but that the work on the Islands 
will bo confined to tho feeding, cloth- 
ing, ho\islng and educating of the na- 
tives. 

"It is to be hoped that this will 
continue not for this season alone, 
but for many years to come. Wo can 
afford to do without Alaska seal skins 
for a generation, if necessary, or lo 
pay extremely high prices for such 
skins as the government may llnd It 
necessary to lake for the benellt of 
tho natives and of tho herd; but wo 
cannot afford to have anv renewal of 
conditions that would load to tho ex- 
tinction of the herd by pelagic seal- 
.ing that has its excuse in our former 
policies of administration. 

"Nevertheless, the niatter is. left In 
n state of uncertainty by the ^present 
law. Nothing permanent has, as yet, 
been accomplished, .-.-The whole mat* 
tor Is, in the hands f>t a . department,

LEGAL INTELLIGENCE 



(Continued £rqm;PBgo^Si.J^',ii^^^ . , 



— The trial of ' this action ■was ''flxed 
bv Gregory, J,, for tho 27th Instant. 
Before Lampman, Co. J. 

Lawrence v. Landsberg. This is a 
claim to enforo a mechanic's lien. Tho 
defendant built a house which she 
supposed was completed In September 
last; her. architest accepted It on 15th 
Sei)tembir,\?';and'. .-'forty days, after- 
wards iKsusd 5ilo final certificate. Tho 
final payment was made cn Sth ot 
November. Tho plaintiff, who is a 
plumber, went to the house and 
changed a register on 16th January, as 
the original one was not according to 
specifications. A month or so before 
the contractor had left - Victoria and 
plaintiff knew It. Plf.lntiff now 
claims a lien on tho ground that tho 
register put In in January was a 
part of his work, and was the com- 
pletion of his sub-contract. The arch 
Itect and defendant were not aware 
that anything further was, to be done 
and; so far as appears "from the evl 
dence the defendant • never knew till 
served with the summons that tho 
register had been uut in. 

Lamjiman, Co. J.: I repeat what I 
said In my judgment in Pox v. Troup 
and Macluro on 17th November, 1905 
—remarks which I think are appllo 
able to this case: 

In my oidnlon, where a plaintiff 
claims to revive a Hen by means of 
material supplied and work dono af 
tor the completion of a building, and 
after the architect has given the fin 
al. certificate, it is incumbent on him 
to prove clearly that the material was 
supplied and the work dohe in pur 
suance of and aa a part of his orlgi' 
nal agrreement. In this the plaintiff 
fails, and his claim for a lien must 
lie dismissed." 

It was sought to make defendant 
personally liable because iier hus- 
band had requested plaintiff to do 
the worlc, but a husband Is not nec- 
I'Ksarlly an agent, for his wife, and 
the facts shown are not sufficient to 
Justify me In holding that he was her 
agent. 

I express no opinion as to whether 
or not the plaintiff's cause of action 
Is sufficiently stated in the plaint lo 
warrant a judgment for a lien, even 
if the facta shewed a good case. The 
action Is dismissed, with costs. Kltto 
for plaintiff; Bradshaw for defen- 
dant. 

An application will be made In 
chambers today for i)ermlssion to 
amend statement of claim by the 
plaintiffs In an action for damages 
avirmg out of an alleged conspiracy 
o^neeinlng t-n option upon lands In 
tho E. & N. Railway belt.

^ Semi-ready Tailoring offers you all the .advantages of the made-to-measure 
Clothes plus (+) the fact that you can know just how it will suit you when it is 
made up. You can't know this in the web of cloth. 

^ Plus again +. Up to the moment that it is exactly tight the Semi-ready tailor 
can add to and substract from die garment, and make corrections until he and his 
customer are both satisfied. He can build up the sutik-in spots, stiaigluen a stoop, 
accentuate chest, diminish corpulencjr — for our physique type system is founded on 
the propordons of anatomy, and he has the secret of the true ait in the craftsoianship. 

^ Semi-ready Suits can be finished in two hours — and tho man who has to wear 
them feels that his suit has been designed and made for hinu 

9 When the Suit is sent home it is shaped right, and the right shape stays, for it is 

wrought into the garment by men tailors who have grown expert. 

<3 That is why Semi-ready Garments are not only satisfactory at the outset, but up to 
the last days the garments are in use. 'Tis why we cin put a real guaiaDtee in 

the pocket of every Suit wo make. 

^ And the cost. If the way of to^ay, saves you $5 to $15, wouldn't you just as 
soon join the throng who know now. . li

Maurice Quinn, a wealthy American 
owner of 3i"i,(100 acres of some of tho 
richest timber land on Vancouver 
Island, was In AlbernI last week on 
a trip of Inspection to his holdings In 
this neighborhood. Mr.' Quihn' has 
held his timber acreage for tho 
past nine years, buying out the hold- 
IngB of the Toronto Lumber " 'coni- 
pany. His visit was for the purpose 
of finding out about tho prospects of 
transportation In and around Alberni 
and It is understood that as a result 
lie will form a syndicate of capital- 
ists to erect a iuiwmlU and commence 
shipping: timber from the western 
terminus of the E. & N. railway. The 
Alberni holdiiifr la a peculiarly valu- 
able one, running some 5Q,000 feet, of

Princess Charlotte Picked Up 
,tlie Steamer Disabled Off 

■-■'Mayne Island on Sunday 
IVlormng ! 



The steamier -Princess Charlotte en 
route from Seattle to Vancouver on 
Siinda.v morning, at 5 o'cloclv found 
the .steamer Charmer bound from 
Victoria to Vancouver broken down, 
drifting toward the land at the soutli- 
ern end of IMayne Island, a valve of 
her air jiimii) having brolteii down, 
aad i)raclieally crippled the vessel. 
A Ivedgo anchor had been put out, 
when it was found that the vacuum 
had been broken with the result that 
the condensers could not be used and 
the Charmer was setting In toward 
the land, being scarcely a stone's 
throw away 'when the Princess Char- 
lot'^e sighted her. Capt. Griffin took 
IiIh vessel to the Charmer, but while 
manoeij vering to get a line on the 
Charnier the hawser caught in the 
l)ropellor of the larger boat and some 
d('!a\- occurred. Eventually a lino 
was made fast, and the Charmer was 
lowed to Village Bay, Mayne Island, 
where licr engineers effected repairs, 
and the steamer proceeded to Vancou- 
ver. The Princess Charlotte was de- 
layed a few hours, arriving here at 
ii.'iO p. m. on Sunday, and sailing 
again at 7 p. m. two hours late, for 
Seattle. • 

The steamer City of Nanalmo took 
the run of the Charmer on Monday 
morning. Meanwhile repairs were 
effected to the air' pump and the 
Charmer arrived on time yesterday.

The Cost of Producing Coal 

The nrst step Jn the production of 
coal Is to provfi and win the coiil- 
Eoam, nnd to purchase and erect tho 
plant and machinery required for the 
equipment of a colliery. To do this 
needs a large amount of capital, run- 
ning sometimes Into hundreds of 
thousands of pounds. The rlsUs are 
great, not only from the uncertainty 
of natural conditions such as water, 
gas and geolosioal dislocations, but 
also from labor disputes and the va- 
garies of legislation. Whnt the return 
may bo on the capital investetl, and 
when It will be roallzod Ih never ii 
certainty and sometlitie.s a matter of 
great si)ecuIation it I;-. \rv\ ilaiiKer- 
ous to ombark on coalmining enter- 
prises without iui ample margin of 
capital, sufflolent to meet unforeseen 
expenses, and to tide over the lean 
year.s when no prollt can be maile. .V 
largo amount of capital lia.s been lost 
Itl coalmining. It Is only the chance 
of niakln.t; large prodls that attracts 
Imcstois, anti If large jirollts aie not 
forthcoming, there will be Increaflng 
tllfflculty In getting tho capital nceil- 
ed for colller>' undertakings. 

Capital Expenditure 
.\n article on ilic cost of prodticing 
coal would be Inconipleti' without some 
estlnialo of tho cost of the capital re- 
quired. The question Is eoniplicated by 
tho varying practice at the different 
collieries as to .w'hat expenditure would 
be pliced to capital account, and what 
should be paid out .of ordinary reven- 
ue. But, estimating It broadly, as thu 
.amount required to sink a couple of 
shafts to an average depth and to 
equip a colliery for an output of lOOO 
tons a day — or say 300,000 tons a year 
— Iirobably £150,000 or ten shillings a 
tori yearly output may be taken as an 
average capital expenditure. The lar- 
ger the output, the less will be tlio 
proportionate expenditure. In an ar- 
ticle In the "Cpniery Manager's Pocket 
.Book" for 1903, Mr. J. H. Merlvalo 
gives the folloving estimate, based to 
some extent on actual figures: 

Collieries up to 80,000 tons per an- 
num, per ton, 12s; collieries up to 150,- 
000 tons [ler annum, par ton, 10s; 
collieries uji to 400,000 tons per an- 
num, per ton, 8s; collieries up to 750,- 
000 tons iicr annum, per ton, 7s; tind 
he takes tho average to be nine slill- 
ling.s n ton. Allowing 3 iicr cent for 
the redemption of the capital— or a 
period of about thirty-three years for 
redeeming it — .3 iier cent on !).'. la 3.- 
24(1., 3 i>cr cent on lO.i. Is 3.6d. In the 
cost of iiroducing coal therefore, tho 
charge per ton for the repayment of 
the caiilLal Invested, without allowln;; 
any Interest for the use of it, may be 
put on an average of 3^4d a ton of 
gross output. 

The Cost of Labor 

In the cost of working coni tho 
largest Item, and one that has been 
steadily increasing for a good many 
years. Is the cost of labor. The cost 
of labor should be distinguished from 
the rate of wages. The cost of labor 
maj- be high though the rate Of wages 
be low, and a high ra^e Of Wages 1.'^ 
not Incomiiatlble with a high cost of 
labor. This Is shown broadly by the 
fact that In such countries ns Belgium 
and France, where the rate of wages 
Is lower, the cost of labor Is higher 
than in the United Kingdom and the 
United States where the rate of wages 
is higher. This Is due to the great 
natural difflcultlea, the thin, hard, 
^tcep and contorted coal seams In the 
former countries. The cost of labor 
depends not only on the amount spent 
In wages, but on the production of 
("oal In tons In return for the wiigos. 
And the production of coal per man 
(lepi'nds on a number ol' things, •Inchid- 
ing the natural condltloiiH of the 
niine.'the energy nnd skill and strengtli 
of the man, and on the cfllclency of 
the management. Again the rate of 
wages la u different thing from thu 
wages actually earned. The wAges 
earned depend on the number of ahlft.s 
worked as well as on the rate of 



wages. A lilgli rate of wages mny 
cause Irregular and lessened emjiloy- 
nicnt, and a man's actual carnlng.s 
may bo le.is than they would have 
■been with a lowif rate of wugoa. 
The Rate of Wngei 
Some authorities assert that the 
rate of wages Is not a factor at all 
I in the cost of mining, Mr. .Tames 
Kalph Finlay (lecturer at Hurvnrd 
University on the Economics of Min- 
llng) in his book recently intbllsheil, 
"The Cost of .Alining," states that the 
I price of labor Is determined by the 
• natural factors; that 11 is an effect, 
not a cause. In the economy of iiiiii- 
Ing; that In two iieigliliorin.ir districts 
with the same iiiitunil advaiitiigen, 
tluiugh the rtite of \va,[;es m.ay be dif- 
ferent the cost will be the same; the 
mine paying lowir wages having 
poorer men. "The difl'evcncit will bit 
'equalized by the supply and demand 
for labor as automa llcally as water 
runs down hill." Tlii.s may be true 
where the .'supply ;uul ilemand for labor 
i.'; free and tmreslricted, Imt in this 
couiitry, for good or for evil, the rate- 
of wa.ges is protected and stimulated 
by the action of the minor.s" unions.

The Comet 

pir: — Ilnlley's comet was limed to 
cross the sun on :May ISth, IfllO. How 
many days dbl It taUe lo make Its pass- 
age acro.'ts the son? .\st roiioniers sjiirl 
tho coniel would not bo visible ;U the 
lime of ii!i:!:eige. 

A few ininiites before 7 o'clock of lite 
C'eiiing of y\i\y l.s, I receU'Cd a laeonUt 
teleiilione from my .'^on on h'nrt street, 
saving, "Look at the sun.", My daugh- 
ter, Mrs. It. HIgglns. hastened out. and 
Immediately cnlled, "Come out. the sun 
Is going round and round," With unpro- 
tected eyes I saw the face of the sun, 
covered appareQ{.ly with a grey seinl- 
translucont inantle, with dark spots, 
through which the sun, mellowed, could 
bo more or less distinctly seen. Sur- 
rounding this mantle was a hand of pink 
coloring, say. three tir four Inches In 
breadth. This band would now and 
again appetir to crack and a bright light 
appear, and then close. Instead of a 
crack, the opening would zig-zag, like 
small flashes of forlted liglitnlng. Tliese 
often occurred. Surrouniling tlil.s pand 
and shooting apriarenlly from hehiml It 
appeared jioautlftil and brilliant stream- 
ers, reaching to great lengths here, 
there, and everywhere at quick time, re- 
sembling tho aurora' borealls or merry 
dancers, and of' similar- colors, the an- 
tics of these giving tho eappearance of 
a rotary motion of the am. We watch- 
ed those weird," beautiful nppehrainces 
with creepy feelings for at least a quar- 
ter of an hour, the .sun descending all 
the time, the aiipoarances varying but 
little ns he went down. It was a very 
fino evening, the sky blue, as usual In 
Victoria at this tlnio of tho year, and 
around the sun pei'foctly clour. At a 
distance appeared a mass of cumulus, 
fringed with tlie ordinary bright light of 
the sun — no smoke. 

The most of the above npiicared In 
tiie Times of inth May.— I. S. H. 

On first seeing thin we called our 
neighbors out to talio a look. They 
were astounded -at U'le appearance, and 
we, six. adults and four children, watch- 
ed together and' tlien went home to din- 
ner, and to find ^hat my cook, a China- 
men, had been out investigating on his 
own account! Result, spoiled coolcer'y. 
I have lived more than fifty years' In 
Victoria and have never seen anything 
like It. 

My son James subsequently told mo 
that he was coming home down Fort 
street, where a large number of peoiilo 
had congregated, and they told hint to 
look nt the sun. He salil lt looked like 
a Catherine wheel. At seven o'clock 
business is over, most peoiile In their 
houses nnd from houses hut few ran see 
a sunset. Anyhow hut few iieople look 
or bother about the sun, be being an 
everyday affair, not retmlrlng atteirtlnn, 
and too dazzling to look at, save tlirongli 
a fog of some kind. 

In the Colonist 'Of Mny 19th a whole 
column la occupied by telegrams about 
the comet from various parts of Canada 
and the United States, from observa- 
tories, and from neople who watched 
tho »xin with naked oyes. In nearly all 
these the sky Is said to have been over- 
cast, anil nothing wa.s ^een hut sunsimts, 
save and except one from Fntlior (Pore) 
Martin, in which ho reniarks "a largo 
solar disturbance," The sun spots are 
reported to have beon of enormous di- 
mensions, and our n.stronnnier, Mr. Den- 
Ison, of the weather bureau, had been 
watching and studying the formation 
of tho sunspot or stin.spots for a few 
days prior to the ISth, app.nrently a now 
sunspot (or the old one coming again lii- 
to sight?) 

Whnt relation had this sunspot and 
tho coincident passage of the comet to 
do with the phantasms about and In 
front of the sun observed in Victoria on 
the evening of tho 18th, nnd by residents 
a mile from tho city ou threb preceding 
ovenlngfi? Siinsi)o(s are constantly or 
rretiuenlly coming and going without 
prntlucing any plienomena to us. Any- 
^■, what are .siinspots? People In 
India study them, or dbl years ago, hav- 
ing a conviction that the absence of 
presence of sunstiots forolold years of 
famine or plenty; 1. e., in relation to 
rain <ir its absence, will, what result I 
know not. Anyhow, H. .seems tho lilglier 
we ascend In niir atmosphere the colder 
It becomes. Does tlie sunshine coming 
tp us pass, tlu'ough .snow, avalanches. Ice- 
bergs and glaciers? or is there nothing 
of this icind In space. Are wo bottled un 
In a bottle of Ice! 

Although I have lived In Victorhi for 
more than half a century, 1 have never 
seen anything .liklB the phenomena wlt- 
nessn,] here on the evening ol tho istli 
•May, and I am not awnre of any local 
condltlon-i likely at the time to dchnlo 
our vision at this time. 

J. S. HELMCKE.N'. 

The follo^vingr letter received by Dr. 
Helmoken-is of great interest: . 

It might Interest' you to know that 
tho phenomena ofvthe sun seen by you 
tho night of May 18th, lias also beon

sala, .Sweden. 

I have Just received tho Inst papers

the sun. Its unusual size and dark spots 
were observed earl.v In the night between
